Investor Visa Programme

Individuals who set-up or make a significant investment in the set-up of a company in the UAE become eligible for the Investor Visa. Companies within a range of fields qualify for the programme. The Investor Visa is valid for 3 years, and this can be extended quite easily as long as the company continues to operate.

Conditions of the Resident Visa: The Investor Visa becomes invalid if the holder of the Visa spends more than 6 months at a time outside the United Arab Emirates.

The Visa for your Family

Holders of the Investor Visa have the opportunity to apply for visas for their spouse and children. If you and your partner are not married, please make a note of this when you get in touch with us. We are, of course, also able to find a solution in such a case.

The First Step

Getting your Investor Visa via Company Set-Up with Privacy Management Group

The formation of your Company and the parallel application for your Investor Visa are both handled in a separate type of administrative area within the United Arab Emirates. This type of administrative area is known as a Free Trade Zone and offers you many excellent advantages, such as:

  • The Advantages
    • Your investor visa, which is required for your residency, is valid for the entire UAE;
    • Your company is subject to 0% corporate tax, and no other duties;
    • Your total personal income is subject to 0% income tax;
    • Your company belongs exclusively to you, there is no need for third party shareholders;
    • You will have immediate access to national and international banks;
    • Your residence is not linked to you actually staying in the UAE*;
    • You will have access to the best travel and transport connections available.
    • The benefits are almost identical across the different Free Trade Zones. It is nonetheless important to put some thought into which FTZ is best for your company.
  • The Next Step Your individualised service package by Privacy Management Group.
    • UAEThe best choice for the base of operations of your company is dependent on several factors, because every Free Trade Zone has its own area of specialisation. To give you an example: if your business is international trade, an Ajman Free Zone company may be right for you; but if your company offers consulting services, Ajman FTZ is not an ideal option as it doesn't offer a business licence in the field "Consulting / Services / Professional“, so Dubai or Ras Khaimah would be better options.
